Mapei’s Ultrabond eco MS 4 LVT
ULTRABOND eco MS 4 LVT is Mapei’s newest adhesive for installing LVT tiles, designed for use on interior floors for LVT floor coverings and as a universal adhesive for all types of textile and resilient flooring coverings, including vinyl. Mapei says Ultrabond eco MS 4 LVT is suitable for use with under-floor heating systems and in areas where extreme temperature fluctuations occur.
John Monaghan, resilient product manager at Mapei UK commented: ‘Mapei Ultrabond Eco MS 4 LVT is a great addition to the Mapei Ultrabond adhesive family. The versatility of the adhesive is immense and will enable fitters to complete jobs in areas where historically two part adhesives would be required.’
This adhesive can even be applied in wet rooms and also in showers, Mapei claims. Installation times are said to be reduced as Mapei Ultrabond eco MS 4 LVT requires no mixing. Another major advantage with Mapei Ultrabond Eco MS 4 LVT is there is reportedly no waste, just replace the lid and the remaining product can be used again.
In kitchen areas, the following Mapei system incorporating Mapei Ultrabond eco MS 4LVT can be applied. First, Mapei recommends using Mapeproof ESM surface damp proof membrane (used in accordance with British Standards BS 8203) where the moisture content is higher than 75% RH on cement based substrates. Once dried, apply Mapei eco Prim T primer, then once the primer is dry, apply Latex Plan Trade smoothing and leveling compound 3- 10mm in one application. The resilient floor covering is then ready to be secured using Mapei Ultrabond Eco MS 4 LVT.
